The journey continues

I had a good ride on Saturday. It was a 55 miler with about 15 cyclists. Cold day, decided on the way to the start that I wasn't going to have any breathing problems. Two puffs on the inhaler, spent 20 minutes breathing easy in the cold temps before taking off. No wheezing at all, during or after. Another cyclist did have an asthma attack early on. I think it scared a couple of people.

On another note, there are some things in life that need reflection and review. I've made several mistakes in my life, though I'd not change any of them. Can't say I'm proud of them either. There are some things we want, hope for, that at some point we realise need to put them aside. It's hard for me to do this. I've struggled against it too long. Almost requires a greiving process much like saying goodbye to cigarettes.

Today is a new day. Find the good stuff in it and realise how blessed I am.

The start of the new year is a perfect time for reflection, saying goodbye and saying hello to something new, isn't it?
